Find My Kids Becomes the First Child Locator App to Integrate with Apple Watch

Find My Kids announces a new collaboration with Apple Watch, as it becomes the first third-party developer’s child safety app approved for integration by Apple on its popular, wearable smart device. The Find My Kids app includes location tracking and a built-in pedometer, ideal for Apple Watch users.

Once installed on an Apple Watch, the child-safety application works autonomously, with or without the child’s phone connected. This is the first time an Apple Watch device can share its location with phones outside the Apple ecosystem.

Find My Kids aims to help keep families safe and together. Recommended for use in families with children ages 6+, the app offers peace of mind to parents and ensures safeguarding of children in line with the kidSAFE Seal Program.

Besides being able to use the app to locate their child in real time, parents can also see their detailed location history for up to 30 days. Children, in turn, can easily press the SOS button right on their Apple Watches and parent will receive an alarm signal, even if their phone is in silent mode – the Find My Kids app will trigger Critical Notification, which rings a loud signal to notify parents that their child could be in trouble.

In addition to the safety features, in order to motivate children to do some physical activity, the app for Apple Watch has a gamified Pedometer which encourages children to walk more throughout the day.

Apple representatives reached out to Find My Kids about the integration for both new iPhones and Apple Watch models and, as a result, Find My Kids became available for the smartwatch, with the development process getting a significant priority.

Vadikh Giniatulin, CEO at Find My Kid says: “Our company’s mission is to make sure parents raise happy kids in a safe environment. We’re trying to make our app accessible for both parents and kids, so the new Apple Watch version will greatly benefit both sides of our users. We’re constantly ensuring the best performance of our product, so any integration with the latest gadgets is just a matter of time.”
